Chicken Alfredo and Bonus Chicken Alfredo Pizza Recipes

So way back in the day my sister in law lived with us for a few months while she went to college. My husband and I were newlyweds and I was still learning how to cook. Brick oven baked roasts and thrown out batches of brick bread that refused to rise. Most coming with lessons learned, like roasts are best slow roasted (crock pot preferably) and yeast wants warm water not scaulding hot :). Anyways she made this recipe and I loved it. So much so I remember sorta awkwardly sneaking bites of her leftovers...
It also makes me think of her late husband who she was newly dating at the time. 
Never fails when I make this I think of her haha. Love you Nik! 

Adapted a little



Cook noodles according to package 

Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium low heat, when melted add minced garlic. Let cook for one minute. Next add flour to butter. Stir and cook for 1-2 minutes. Add milk/cream, salt and pepper and simmer for 5 minutes, or until thickened. Stirring constantly. Stir in oregeno/Italian seasoning. Turn off heat then add cheese and whisk quickly, heating through. Pour over drained noodles in the noodle pan and stir together.

Top with pan cooked chicken 
Great with extra Shake Parmesan cheese ontop (the pizza topping kind) 

Speaking of pizza this is a great recipe for  Alfredo pizza! Top your crust with this sauce and minced chicken and onion then ontop of that add mozzarella cheese. Bake for 15-20 min or until golden brown.

Nursery Peg Board Organizer

I love how this organizer turned out. I love being organized and this really fits the bill for my nursery as far as that goes. The funnest (have we decided if that's a word or not yet?) part was screwing it to the wall without power tools! Yah! That doesn't take 50x as long haha. My problem with projects are when they pop into my head I make them happen right away, not waiting. I saw the peg board baskets at Walmart and this project came to mind and I immediately went to my hardware store and bought peg board and had them cut it to size. Once I got home I was putting it on the wall haha. No waiting until my husband got home (with a drill) to do it. 

It goes along with his nursery really well and will be great for storing pacies, socks, and whatever else. It's also nic because hardware stores have about 100 different hooks and things to add to your peg board.

Hope you're inspired to make your own for your craft room, or whatever room you need more storage in!
